Let Me In

Skin delicate as a flower
Healing superficially
Protruding double edge scars

Protecting a soft
Broken beauty with a will of wanting
Sat rabid inside a vulnerable shell

Some cut my tissue
Scrape away at my flesh
Seeking the weakness within

Ignorance unearths deep foundations
Critical echoes erects towering walls
Creating an impenetrable field of solitude

Only passable through invitation
Even then,
Trespassers alarm the mind to traitors

If chosen and elected to intrude
Tread carefully with your voice
Step lightly with decision

Once warmth is shared, please I beg
Don’t break trust, heart, or soul
For the shield of hope will cease

Convincing the body of spirit
To internally combust
Collapsing inward upon itself
